I'll be 41w5d and am heading to the hospital for an induction tomorrow at 8am. I am ok with it, my only qualm is that I will not be able to labor in the tub.

My induction with DS was at 41w2d and went smoothly. I know I can do it again. My MW is going to start pit at the lowest level and see how that works on me.

Of course there is the slightest chance I could go in to labor tonight. Here's hoping. Otherwise I will finally have my baby girl in my arms tomorrow

DS is 4!
DD 8/10/10!

Good luck! We all know our labor might not go how we want, but as long as there is a healthy baby at the end of it... Any reason to start with pitocin and not cervidil or some other cervical ripening agent? Maybe you are already "ripe"?

I'm kinda bummed that since Aden was positioned badly I didn't get to use the shower/tub myself. I was never able to get off the monitors. But it's over now and I have my darling Soon you will too!

Loving mama to Aden (8/5/2010) and DSD (15).
